Electronic Arts has submitted two new trademark applications for Desert Strike with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, hinting that a remake of the popular 1992 shoot ‘em up video game is in the works.
Desert Strike was originally released in February 1992 and involved the player piloting an AH-64 Apache helicopter.
A remake of Desert Strike may come as no surprise. The game sold well and for its time, it was Electronic Arts’ highest ever selling game.
So far EA has made no announcement as to a remake, although, there have been many people online calling for a remake throughout the years.
